Chelsea are now without a win in three at home following the 3-3 draw with Roma on Wednesday, and they – as Leicester did 12 months ago – are finding out the hard way the importance of N’Golo Kante. The diminutive Frenchman is out injured, and his are large metaphorical shoes to fill.
Watford won’t mind, and in fact the Hornets are buzzing at present. They have lost just once this term, and took all three points against Arsenal last week. Marco Silva’s side have also amassed ten points from a possible twelve on the road, so have no fear on their travels.
Chelsea, with just two-and-a-bit days to recover from their Champions League activities, are vulnerable here.
Watford +1.50 Asian Handicap (41/50 with bet365)
